Atonement for "Star Wars: A New Hope": The Real Reason George Lucas Funded "Red Tails"

There was not one Black person in this film
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Go watch it. Pop it in your DVD/Blu Ray player and enjoy the one movie that George Lucas regrets having made. Yes, the 1977 space saga is the basis for the massive money-making machine which helped Lucas buy Skywalker Ranch and become a billionaire, but outside of Star Wars: The Holiday Special this is the one story he regrets telling.

Why? Because the cast was whiter than the one in American Graffiti. Not one Black face is to be seen in the movie that introduced the world to Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi, Grand Moff Tarkin, and Wedge. Not one Black face in the entire film of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Not even Darth Vader himself is a Black guy (spoiler alert: Vader is the father of the blond haired, blue-eyed Luke).

Uber-comic book nerd Kevin Smith wrote a scene detailing this exact scenario in this boring film Chasing Amy (PK Note: Hooper is a Black Nationalist comic writer; Holden and Banky are hapless white guys:
Hooper: For years in this industry, whenever an African American character, hero or villain, was introduced - usually by *white* artists and writers - they got slapped with racist names that singled them out as Negroes. Now, my book, "White-Hatin' Coon," don't have none of that bullshit. The hero's name is Maleekwa, and he's a descendant from the black tribe that established the first society on the planet, while all you European motherfuckers were still hiding in caves and shit, all terrified of the sun. He's a strong role model that a young black reader can look up to. 'Cause I'm here to tell you, the chickens is coming home to roost, y'all. The black man's no longer gonna play the minstrel in the medium of comics and sci-fi fantasy. We keepin' it real, and we gonna get respect by any means necessary. 
Holden: Ah, come on, that's a bunch of horse shit! Lando Calrissian was a black guy. You know. He got to fly the Millennium Falcon, what's the matter with you?
Hooper: Always some white boy gotta invoke the holy trilogy. Bust this: Those movies are about how the white man keeps the brother man down, even in a galaxy far, far away. Check this shit: You got cracker farm boy Luke Skywalker, Nazi poster boy, blond hair, blue eyes. And then you got Darth Vader, the blackest brother in the galaxy, Nubian god!  
Banky Edwards: What's a Nubian?  
Hooper: Shut the fuck up! Now... Vader, he's a spiritual brother, y'know, down with the force and all that good shit. Then this cracker, Skywalker, gets his hands on a light saber and the boy decides he's gonna run the fuckin' universe; gets a whole clan of whites together. And they go and bust up Vader's hood, the Death Star. Now what the fuck do you call that?  
Banky Edwards: Intergalactic civil war?  
Hooper: Gentrification! They gon' drive out the black element to make the galaxy quote, unquote, safe for white folks. And Jedi's the most insulting installment! Because Vader's beautiful black visage is sullied when he pulls off his mask to reveal a feeble, crusty, old white man! They tryin' to tell us that deep inside we all wants to be white!  
Banky Edwards: Well, isn't that true?
[Hooper pulls out his gun, shoots Banky]
George Lucas is well-aware of the new rules governing Hollywood (as denoted in Hollywood in Blackface and the Fast and the Furious article here at SBPDL) and he was quick to add Billy Dee Williams into The Empire Strikes Back as Lando Calrissian, the administrator of Cloud City (who, we should add, "snitched" on his friend Solo to the Empire) to cast. This added some much needed diversity to the lily-white cast, though he bust out the crayola casting for the three prequel movies that came out in 1999 - 2005.

It should also be stated these three movies are universally loathed by fans of the "real" trilogy.

Could this be the real reason Lucas decided to put up his own money to bankroll Red Tails, a movie that many hope will replicate the success of a similar film Remember the Titans (the latter movie was based on a true story, but the Black screen writer liberally added fabricated stories of racism)? Lucas wanted to atone for the all-white Star Wars, by making a movie that had no conceivable audience (remember, single Black women only have a net worth of $5 and a ticket to a movie costs double that) outside the United States.

What do you mean by that, you ask? Well, only in America do Black actors have any box-office pull. The rest of the world doesn't subscribe to the belief in the supremacy of the Black Fictional Heroes, which is not good for a healthy return on investment Hollywood studios seek:
Dreamgirls has enjoyed a remarkable run, winning two Oscars, seeing Jennifer Hudson emerge as the toast of Tinseltown, and crossing the $100 million barrier at the domestic box office. But the musical’s greater financial situation tells a more troubling story — namely, the difficulty studios have in selling movies starring African-Americans internationally.

As The New York Times reported in a long feature yesterday, Dreamgirls has earned more than $101 million in the U.S. and Canada, but Paramount expects it will make little more than $60 million abroad. Which is particularly problematic in an era when Hollywood increasingly depends on foreign box office to drive profits. These days, 52 percent of movie earnings come from international markets. As BET Networks entertainment president and House Party director Reginald Hudlin says in the Times‘ story, "I always call international the new South. In the old days, they told you black films don’t travel down South. Now they say it’s not going to travel overseas." At home, frequent box office champ Will Smith seems like the biggest star on the planet, but the Times quotes industry watcher James Ulmer as saying that Smith ranks no better than No. 12 in terms of worldwide bankability.
 The most common type of movie that Hollywood makes with African-Americans? Comedies. Yet among the top domestic grossers of 2006, every comedy (Talladega Nights, Click, Borat, The Break-Up) fared better at home than abroad; American humor apparently doesn’t travel well.Unfortunately, studios fear that black people don’t go to the movies,so they don’t make many different kinds of movies for black people(much like they don’t make many movies for women). But as the successof Smith’s The Pursuit of Happyness (pictured) or Tyler Perry’s films (or, in the case of female-driven movies, The Devil Wears Prada)shows, those fears are misguided, a self-fulfilling prophecy. If the studiosmade more high-quality dramas with African-Americans, rather than broadgenre films, maybe international audiences would be interested. The industry certainly won’t know if it doesn’t try.
Considering that studios rely heavily on the international market to raise box office receipts, Hollywood is squeamish about green-lighting any film that is seen as "too Black."

 Enter George Lucas, still trying to atone for that past lily-white mistake that is the genesis of his entire wealth. Enter Red Tails:
In an appearance on The Daily Show last night, George Lucas said that he had trouble getting funding for his new movie, "Red Tails," because of its black cast.

"This has been held up for release since 1942 since it was shot, I've been trying to get released ever since," Lucas quipped to Jon Stewart. "It's because it's an all-black movie. There's no major white roles in it at all...I showed it to all of them and they said no. We don't know how to market a movie like this."
"Red Tails," which stars Cuba Gooding, Jr., and Terrence Howard, is based on the Tuskegee Airmen, the group of pioneering black pilots who fought in the United States' segregated armed forces during World War II. The movie is directed by Anthony Hemingway, the rare black director getting a chance to direct a big-budget feature.
Last week, Lucas told USA Today that he was worried that if Red Tails was a failure, it could have negative repercussions for black filmmakers. "I realize that by accident I've now put the black film community at risk [with Red Tails, whose $58 million budget far exceeds typical all-black productions]," he said. "I'm saying, if this doesn't work, there's a good chance you'll stay where you are for quite a while. It'll be harder for you guys to break out of that [lower-budget] mold. But if I can break through with this movie, then hopefully there will be someone else out there saying let's make a prequel and sequel, and soon you have more Tyler Perrys out there."
More Tyler Perry's? Didn't he know that Aaron McGruder worked as the screenwriter for Red Tails and is one of the more outspoken critics of Perry? Oh well.

Let's hope that Lucas can finally put the abomination that is all-white Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope behind him with the film Red Tails.

Let's also hope that the credits to his film don't include the fabrication that the Tuskegee Airmen never lost a bomber during the war, as the 1995 HBO movie Tuskegee Airmen did:
At the end, the film details the unit's accomplishments: 66 out of the 450 Tuskegee Airmen died in battle, they engaged and defeated Messerschmitt Me 262s, the first operational jet fighters, and they were awarded a total of 850 medals over the course of the war. The credits also note (inaccurately, but a common belief of the time) that the 332nd never lost a single bomber to enemy fire.

When myth becomes legend, print the myth or something like that, right?

Let's be honest: only in a galaxy far, far way would you ever see a Black pilot truly save the day. Well, or Independence Day.

Lucas also donated mucho dinero to the MLK memorial on the Mall. He is a white guilt disgrace. Should have died after Indy and the Last Crusade.

I agree on the Jefferson/Lee BCS title night travesty. Lee played well all year except for one half and then never saw the field again even when Jefferson failed miserably. Add in Jefferson's post game comments of thinking he did well and you have a SBPDL special entry. Miles isn't dumb though, look at his next QBs for the following seasons.

I'm no history buff, but if memory serves the only ME-262 shot down by American forces was by Chuck Yeager... and even then it was pure luck as he had spotted one coming in for a landing and he snuck up on it's tail while it slowed for touchdown, just to say he "waxed a 262".

Don't have the numbers but I'm sure far more than one 262 was shot down by the Allies. They couldn't even come close to matching the 262 on its terms, but had great success loitering around their airfields waiting for the aircraft to sortie out or return from missions where they could catch them slow and dirty at their most vulnerable.

I happened to be listening to the Michael Savage radio program this evening. It was the first time in years that I did -- for some reason, the broadcast was coming in over another radio program I had planned to listen to. Anyway, Savage made the point that the incident with the Marines in Afghanistan which has been making headlines globally is being exploited by the Obama administration to dismantle the Marine Corps. Savage kept making the point that for the Obama administration, "the Marines are too white."

Savage kept hammering home on this point (causing, I am sure, DWLS around the Homeland to go into hissy fits): the liberals want to destroy the Marines because "the Marines are too white."

Savage's approach was kind of interesting. He used a righteous anger. He didn't go into the usual apologetics over race, he stated his point forcefully, and openly, and in such a manner as to throw the DWLs on the defensive.

Kind of like SBPDL.

This is a critical point, because to make agitprop succesful, you have to take the offensive, and hammer home your point.

Perhaps things are starting to break loose...

Speaking of South Africa, I am Just finishing the book "Into the Cannibals Pot" by Ilana Mercer. More chilling that the descriptions of negroid violence is the pathetic attempts of the Whites to hold their culture and identity together in the face of this horror. An odd fatalism seems to have permeated their souls, leaving them almost passive in the face of the destruction of their colony. She repeatedly draws parallels to the USA and warns that this is our fate if we continue to embrace "Affirmative Action". GOOD BOOK.

Resist, Repel and Repatriate.

I remember seeing parts of the HBO movie years ago. ENjoyed it before I could really understand blacks. Now I just assume it's mostly BS to make loud angry black leaders complacent. Blacks are so stupid they think every one of them is a superchimp.

Hard to imagine it making that much money. Critics will praise it for the same reason theypraised Spike Lee - if they don't they'll seem racist, and every one of them is to chickens##t to get Jesse Jackson yelling at him.

Normal people know it's propaganda and won't pay to see it. Blacks are to poor but some will see it (if they enough on their EBT cards they can save their own 'earned' cash). Young white liberals will love it but will only download pirated versions and not spend money on it.

Of course ticket sales are dropping. How many people in your circle of acquaintances have the kind of disposable income needed to spend an evening at the movie?

The last time I did,and this was 4 or 5 years ago already,dinner for two at a half decent restaurant,two tickets and a couple of boxes of popcorn came out to right at a hundred bucks. ( OK,she went overboard ordering wine,but still....)

No one I know has that kind of money any longer,and that brings up another point that has me wondering:

Digital technology has revolutionized film making,to the point where college kids with a mid-market video recorder and a good PC can,and do,make some pretty good films. And the last time I was watching a rental,it struck me that at least half of it was CGI. So if all of this can be done on a keyboard at a desk,and anyone making an epic no longer has to truck a thousand extras out into the desert for three or four days,feed them,house them,get them to rehearse and then get them all pointed in the right direction for that one big battle scene or what have you-

Why haven't ticket prices come down?????

It would seem that if you can make films faster,better,and cheaper by hiring a couple of software manipulators to sit at a desk and do the CGI stuff for half of the film content,movies ought to be getting cheaper!

Am I missing something? I'm sure I am,but what exactly am I not seeing?

I'm sure that 'Red Tails' will be a failure for the simple fact that I, (And I'm sure many of you also) stopped going to theaters years ago because of negros in the audience.
We all know that it only takes a couple of negros, with cell phones ringing and screaming at the screen, to ruin the theater experience.
Can one just *imagine* what it would be like with a theater just packed with negros? I shudder at the thought.
I couldn't help but laugh when I saw a commercial for this movie on TV with a negro pilot screaming 'How you like DAT Mistuh Hitluh!!' and sounding like Steppen Fetchit.

With Hollywood getting more and more blatant with rewriting history, I'm sure next up will be a movie about the brave band of negros, who against all odds, defeated the communist Chinese at The Battle of Los Angeles during the Civil War.

What you're missing is that the drop in ticket sales is uniquely American.

While few will admit it, many White Americans won't stretch their cash-strapped budgets to endure two hours of distractions in a theater while be inundated with some politically correct nonsense mfgd by leftist Hollywood 1%ers.

Lucas's comments on the Daily Show were quite surprising for how frank they were. I was pleased to see a mainstream outlet allow somebody to point out that there are places where Blacks cannot succeed. It was probably quite a shock for the audience to even contemplate for a moment of such a possibility. They probably instinctively thought that it is because of racism of the non-americans, but of course they would have to block out all the contradictions flying around. Such as, most of the world, where black movies fail, is non-white, but after all only whites can be racist.

It is interesting that once Blacks are beyond the long reach of the U.S. government's ability to shove them down peoples throats, they lose their place as the model of perfection for humanity. I would love to see the rage and handwringing that goes on within OB and DWL circles when they have to confront this reality.

Since we're bringing up topics for SBPDL articles today, how about "being out of prison."

For something supposed to be so terrible, blacks do an awful job of staying out of jail. There is only one real conclusion a logical person can make: blacks enjoy being in prison.

Maybe there are quotes out there about how blacks really feel about being locked up.

Anon 6.09 here again.

You're certainly correct in that assertion. I won't spend that kind of cash,and the only reason I did it that last time was that it was the release of Master and Commander-The Far Side of the World. (I'm a huge fan of the Aubrey/Maturin novels,and wanted to see just how badly one of my favorites had been mangled. The restaurant part wasn't my idea-I would have been content with a tuna salad sandwich before we left or after we got back...)

But if I want to watch a flick now days,I rent something vintage,or a documentary of some sort,although I can almost always find something to do that doesn't involve feeding the machine. Boats,building things,fixing things,getting outside and cutting firewood,etc. It's absolutely mind boggling how many ways there are to occupy yourself and your family that do not involve paying Hollywood.

Percy Kittens Reloaded said...

Black Asses, er, uh, Red Tails, will fail for all the reasons everyone else has mentioned, but also for one very important reason no one else has mentioned yet (and it is the biggest single reason):

#1 Black people don't value movies that have characters with honor, integrity, self-sacrifice, valor, principles, or morals. Such themes are foreign to black audiences. They simply are not interested in a movie about a person or a group of people working hard to achieve something bigger than themselves (regardless of how true or false Red Tails as a film is).

Black audiences are more likely to flock to a film that features questionable characters engaging in hard-core violence against other black people or society at large. A film about black pilots fighting Hitler will no appeal to black Americans. They are more likely to be interested in a film about drug-smuggling, life in the 'hood, or gang-banging than a film about serving one's country, defending fellow Americans, and fighting to preserve liberty and freedom. If the film isn't a loud, sex-crazy movie about getting high or making booty calls or black men dressing in women's clothing, or if it's not about gangs and drugs and life in the projects, black audiences have zero interest in the film.

But there's also another big reason:

#2 Of the few black people who may show a slight interest in this film, you can bet almost all of them will obtain a bootlegged copy of the film. They won't even take the time to support a black film director or support a film with positive, uplifting images and messages about black people (nor should they be automatically expected to; quality and merit should be the sole determining factor when seeing a film). I've got a black employee who always comes to me asking about what I thought of such and such a film, and I'd say: "It's not even in theaters yet. How can you have already seen the film and have an opinion on it?" and his response is always: "Percy, you forget I live in the 'hood", and then he laughs (and, unfortunately, I laugh with him). But it's true.They're more apt to steal the film through a bootleg connection than be bothered to pay $10 dollars to actually see it in a theater.

I'm not going to see this film, and I would encourage everyone who has any inclination to watch it to at least illegally download it if they feel compelled to watch it. I'm sure Lucas will re-issue this film on dvd in 10 years, with all new special effects, and an all-white cast, all new merchandise, etc...once this film bombs at the box office.

If they kept the budget to scale, they could make any movie they want to with an all-black cast. The problem is, Lucas wants to make an epic for over $100 million dollars and expects studios to finance his vision. Taylor Perry is successful because he knows how to work within his budget limitations.

SwampThizzle said...

Not only do most movies today suck and rely too heavily on awful-looking CGI, and basically cost too damn much to see, but another major reason that nobody goes to see movies in theaters anymore has to do with black misbehavior at the movies. Loud cell phone conversations, talking at the movie screen, generally boorish behavior, chimpouts, panhandlers, parking lot mob swarm attacks, all of that sleazy ghetto behavior, all proudly on full display. And the close proximity to bus lines only exacerbates matters.

Black misbehavior at the movies has actually hurt Hollywood in so many ways that they don't even begin to fully appreciate it; in fact, it has actually ruined the art form of American cinema. The increased ticket prices are meant to defray the operations costs since less people going to see movies (and armed security guards cost money, too). Quality of films has gone down too in an effort to get more people in to see a movie. Lowest-common-denominator movies for lowest-common-denominator people. Quantity over quality, every step of the way. Now only "sure thing" movies will get the green light. Movies like sequels, comic book adaptations, teen slasher horror schlock, and romantic comedies. They'll occasionally release a "passion project" like Lucas' "Red Tails," but not too many directors have the money to independently do stuff like that. National theater chains will release the black-avoided Oscar try-hards on maybe a few screens, but nobody really goes to see those. Especially since, even though you won't likely be bothered by black misbehavior while watching the film, you might still get stuck leaving the theater by an unruly mob of "teens" after "Fried Chicken 2: Da Sequel" lets out around the same time.

Speaking of South Africa, I am Just finishing the book "Into the Cannibals Pot" by Ilana Mercer.

The book may be worthy, but don't let Mercer fool you. She's an "individualist, not a racialist." She's also one of these women who likes to black it up for whatever reason, frequently posting a Three 6 Mafia "song" at her blog and giving endless "props" and "shoutouts." I could go on about how she proudly declared herself an "Asian mother" in the wake of Amy Chua and bitches endlessly about the country that probably saved her life by allowing her to immigrate, but I'll stop there.

The last movie I saw in the theater was Aliens vs Predator. I may as well have flushed my money down the toilet. I'm a huge fan of both franchises (I like my sci-fi dark and brutal) but AvP (not to mention Alien: Resurrection) should never have been made.

P.S. Another WWII flick that got the DWL treatment is Hart's War. I won't bore you with the details, but needless to say that the only character Who Can See (played by the excellent Cole Hauser) is humiliated by a Tuskegee Airman (Terrence Howard).

What was great about "Star Wars" was the sheer, unselfconscious spontaneity of the film. The spacecraft looked used and dirty, Han shot first, and the characters came straight from the artist's imagination, with no focus group testing.

Spielberg was the same at that time. "Duel" and "Jaws" are still probably his best films. And the latter is about three men who gotta do what men gotta do, while the wife takes care of the boys. And the monster is killed.

Fast forward to the Nineties and you have "Jurassic Park", with Laura Dern pointedly lecturing the audience about "sexism in survival situations", and "Jurassic Park II", in which the monsters are rescued by Greenpeace!

And would Lucas and Spielberg make a film now called "The Last Crusade" (which I overheard an appreciative Asian viewer call, "the phat one!")?

Discard said...

Regarding Black movies: One summer about 30 years ago in Westwood Village, there were four murders committed by Blacks. Westwood Village was the commercial area next to UCLA on the west side of Los Angeles, and the number one date destination for young Whites. Restaurants (no fast food), theaters, lots of free parking, and no diversity. But New Jack City and similar movies drew the Blacks in, and Westwood dried up. Theaters owners don't want movies that will bring Blacks to otherwise White venues.

Regarding Me 262s being shot down on take-off or landing: The Germans tried to make it hard. I was stationed on a former Luftwaffe fighter base. The hangers were massive concrete structures dug into hillsides and overgrown with trees. We used them as our motor pools. The runway was in the middle of a huge meadow where sheep grazed, and carefully laid out so that it was easily flooded to a uniform two or three inches depth. From the air, allied pilots would see the sky reflected, but German pilots could operate from the wet but hard and level surface. You had to be very good or very lucky to catch them.

Um, he's married to a black woman... that probably is the reason."

No, George Lucas' GIRLFRIEND (the financial analyst Mellody Hobson) is black -- but he started work on RED TAILS many many years before he even met her, talkless of going out with her.

Trial commences on February 16, 2012 One Police Plaza, 4th Floor New York, N.Y. 10038 @ 1000 hours. The Trial is open to the general public. Come and view the so-called facts (rank speculation) for yourselves.

Why don't you whiteys find some other movie to hate on, I'm sure that Spike Lee's 1993 hit 'Malcolm X' still leaves a bad semen taste in the mouths of crackers across the nation, along with the stinging fact the an Oscar was the result of such a powerful documentary.

You rednecks and bigots hate black people, but I can't tell me that at least one of you don't watch sports. The NFL, to be more specifically, you cracker tailgate, barbeque, get drunk and pretend to have some type of town brotherhood or city comraderie with your more 'urban' citizens. How do you people fixate your mind to spend $30-100 to see a field product with blacks being the majority of the team? We serve as the gladiators, clowns and court jesters for you crackers, and then scrutinize every aspect of their personal lives. How many of you fucking hillbillies burned your Michael Vick jerseys after news of the dogfighting surfaced? Maybe you peckerwoods felt insulted because historically the dog was garnered more in value than the black man.

You wretched cracker think that there's a heaven waiting for your bigoted asses? Funny if your savior had a sign posted at the pearly gates that racist whites we're allowed. By the way, that was a creative way of saying where each one of you can go. You fucking racist redneck bastards.

I have a questing:
Why can blacks call whites a raciest slur(calling a white person a 'cracker' is a slur) yet blacks have a hissy fit over the word negro(which has been the name of the color black long before Africans).

yet they can get away with calling us 'cracker'and not be labeled a raciest.

well you cannot have it both ways. so either stop using that slur against us or stop throwing a fit if some one uses negro or the real slur.
